NB: the occurrence of F. graminearum in the tests does not necessarily imply that mycotoxins were produced. The result for the intensity of attack on the ears at the time of harvesting (Ear Visual) is not sufficient evidence to draw conclusions on the sensitivity of a maize (corn) variety to the development of mycotoxins.

Few tests from the entire Northern European network show the development of F. graminearum. The fusariosis due to contamination by this parasite is therefore not very common. Amongst the test plots affected by disease, discrimination was used to show that Maïsadour Semences' varieties are very tolerant to Fusarium graminearum.
